Newbie just reading this interesting thread
Last A3 was 140 DSG, hated the DSG due to delay and I'm damn sure I can change gear quicker than that bloody computer, painfully slow pickup from standstill.
Now have an 07 A3 170 manual 7k miles (ah, that's better).
Here's my list and guess what's on it........
False alarms ie airbag warning, particulate filter warning, wipers working of their own accord, ESP warning light came on, heated rear window turning of a few seconds after turning on, radio not turning off, lumpy idle, noisy engine on light throttle openings, the list is getting longer. these are all one off's, do not repeat themselves apart from lumpy idle and noisy on light throttle, it's done this many times.
I also have Symphony 3 with multi function wheel but the various functions are completely wrong, Audi say I'm the first to complain.
I still love it though, the extra BHP really transforms the car, turn the esp off and enjoy.
So, it looks like Audi definately have an issue with the particulate filter sensor or maybe a software glitch.
Oh & hello to you all
